GTV TS Cutting out

Hi all, having sorted one issue on my GTV another has now emerged. After leaving the battery disconnected for a week the car refused to start, it turned over but the CODE light was flashing and it refused to fire. Anyway, eventually cleaned the battery terminals and all was good.
Fast forward to a week later the car cuts out while I'm driving (outside my local pub handily). I got it home and it was showing the following faults on ECUScan, I'm convinced it's still battery related and have bought a new battery earth lead. Is anyone familiar with these codes? (there were none stored before this on the ECU)

Given that one of the codes is the crank/rpm sensor and your car cut out that's where I'd start - it s a common fault.

Usually they start to fail when the engine is hot and will allow a restart when cooled down. The other codes may simply be old ones.
Continually cranking the engine and it not starting is more than likely to have caused the "code"/key issue.

Sounds like an earthing issue to me. Check the engine earth points rather than the battery negative lead.

I think both!! Low battery voltage, check earths/battery. Crank sensor very common and cheap cause of poor starting.

Batteries last 4-5 years if you're lucky, you can always get it tested.

Thanks for the replies everyone, I'll clean the engine earthing points and replace the battery earth over the weekend...Then I guess next stop would be the crank sensor.
